Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study
Satyaloka (सत्यलोक) refers to one of the seven heavens (upper regions) according to the Nīlamatapurāṇa. The Nīlamata mentions the threefold division of the universe indicated by the expressions like Tribhuvana, Trailokya etc. Evidently, the earth is the middle part, above and below which, are the heavens (e.g., Satyaloka) and the nether worlds. But as a matter of fact, the division seems to be twofold only, for the earth itself is regarded as the lowest of the seven upper regions.Source: archive.org: Puranic Encyclopedia
Satyaloka (सत्यलोक).—The world of Brahmā. (See under Brahmā)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Satyaloka (सत्यलोक) or Satya is the residence of Brahmā, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.15:—“[...] O foremost among sages, I [viz., Brahmā] am staying in Satyaloka (Satya). O dear one, I desired the activity of creation (sṛṣṭi) at the bidding of Siva. Even as I stood desirous of creation, the Evil creation, viz. the set of five Illusions appeared before me. It was of the nature of darkness (tamas) endowed with knowledge”.
Note: [Satyaloka] is one of the seven lokas of the upper region. The other six lokas are “bhūḥ, bhuvaḥ, svaḥ, mahaḥ, janaḥ, tapaḥ |”. For the sanctity and position of this loka compare an unidentified quotation from the Devī Bhāgavata.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
